Will there be changes or additions to the content of the games?

Nomura: The two titles that are included as games will have trophy support. We intend to include an extensive range of trophies, from the more orthodox to ones that won't go down easily. Also, the controls in KH1 have been modified to be a little closer to the ones in KH2. We've also replaced some of the models of the main characters with the most recent ones."

Nomura talks Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX development -- Source: Gematsu

"According to Nomura, development on Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix, Square Enix's upcoming HD remaster of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories announced at this year's Tokyo Game Show, was decided before Final Fantasy X HD, which has kept quiet since its Tokyo Game Show 2011 announcement.

The high-definition work on Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix was made possible by the great efforts of two programmers from Square Enix's Osaka team over the course of a year. The Osaka team is basically unchanged, and it's thanks to them that Kingdom Hearts has continued to progress. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix's development is in its final stages."


And that's why FFX is taking so much time. He also talks a little bit about other projects:

The World Ends With You is a personal favorite. He wants to broaden it, but right now hopes that people can enjoy the iOS version.

His work on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is finished. He drew the costumes for Lightning and Snow.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII development is progressing, so please wait for a followup report.

I almost feel bad for those two programmers.  You just know they're under a ridiculous amount of stress.

"Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix is approximately 80 to 90 percent complete, series co-director Tai Yasue said during a Weekly Famitsu feature on next-generation game development. The development team is investigating the addition of special elements to the clear time, according to the co-director.

Yasue also echoed Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura's previous confirmation: there will not be a secret movie."

"You can now pre-order the localized version of the game on Amazon for $39.99 USD. Not bad, right? The placeholder release date is September 30, 2013."

"Also, a picture of the back cover for the game as surface"

Huh, wonder if that means the US version'll have Japanese VA for once. Or if they'd be crazy and cut that, I'd love to hear the justification for that (I'd hope it's licensing issues rather than the comment with FFXIII baffled that non-Japanese might actually want the Japanese voice track.)

... Not that I'd want something like that outside of a few instances of novelty. We're talking DISNEY here, it's not right if I'm not playing with the English VA.

So not having played these before, if I grab this and play Chain of Memories before KH 2, would I be spoiling anything?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Given we're talking about two games that were released before hand and one that is a prequel that can be ignored, no, you shouldn't be.

Though once you do get spoiled you'd probably stop caring anyway, so I'd just run with this anyway.

Yeah, chronologically, you should play KH1, Chain of Memories, and then KH2, so you'd really be playing things in the order you're supposed to. Although if you watch the 358/2 Days cutscenes, I think that might spoil some KH2 stuff for you. Then you can play Birth by Sleep and then stop paying attention because the plot becomes a fuckmire by Dream Drop Distance.

Just read that they've remastered the music with strings, woodwinds, and piano.

So is it worth playing Birth by Sleep before the HD version comes out?

That's meant to be after KH2 I think, so don't sweat it.
